Make New Friends, But Keep the Old Ones

Going to college is a monumental moment in one's life. It is a time to gain independence and learn aspects of yourself that you never knew. However, college is also the time when most people lose contact with old friends. Throughout early school years, such as middle school and high school, most people are surrounded by the same group of friends; and although friends may vow to never lose contact, it is something that is almost certain. Be prepared to lose a little contact with old friends, but remember that it is important to have ties to home that you can always rely on! So go out there and make new friends in college, but don't exclude your old friends from your future!
